Unless you haven't been paying attention at all, you know there has been a ton of violence in our nation over the past couple months, so naturally emotions and tensions are high across the country — which means THINK BEFORE YOU
A Canadian singing group called The Tenors received some backlash on Tuesday at MLB's 87th All-Star Game after one of the performers's decided to wing his part of O Canada to include the saying "all lives matter." YIKES!
About 30 seconds into Canada's national anthem, Remigio Pereira decided to change the line from "With glowing hearts we see thee rise. The True North strong and free" to, "We're all brothers and sisters. All lives matter to the great."
Ch-ch-check out a clip of the anthem to see the ridiculous change as well as the group's apology (below)!
Drama down in San Diego — and it's getting icky.
The San Diego Gay Men's Chorus was all set to sing the National Anthem on Saturday night at the San Diego Padres' MLB game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but things went very wrong very quickly — and now, here comes the fall out.
The chorus, which brought one hundred singers to the game to sing the anthem, was trotted out into center field to perform — but something went wrong with the public address system at the team's home stadium, Petco Park.
At the start of their song, a recording of women singing the National Anthem was played over the loudspeaker, and it was never stopped.
The chorus then had to walk off the field after not being able to perform, and the group alleges they faced chants of "you sing like a girl" from the fans while leaving the stadium in shame.
Furthermore, the chorus alleges that the event almost didn't happen in the first place, as the Padres tried to make the entire group buy tickets to the game before they were able to perform.
The New York Yankees third baseman has been playing pro for two decades, much of that dominating the sport, with a career 3,070 hits and 2,055 RBIs.
But 2017, the final year of his $275 million 10-year contract, will also mark his last at bat. He told ESPN:
"I won't play after next year. I've really enjoyed my time. For me, it is time for me to go home and be dad."
Awww! Lucky kids!
Interesting note for his final season: with 687 career home runs, the 40-year-old needs only 28 to catch Babe Ruth as third all-time home run leader behind only Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds.
Good luck, A-Rod!
